The Static Shift

Posted by Shane Macaulay on 2018/08/28

We are a Calgary based, multi album power trio made up of Mitchell Brady (Guitar / Vocals), Keone Friesen (Bass / Harmonica), and Isaiah Stonehouse (Drums / Background Vocals). We have recorded and released two full albums (Windsor Street (2014), Common Bliss (2017)) and an EP (At Odds (2015)), and are always working on new material. Our music is described as a mixture of classic rock and blues, with romps of alternative, indie and psychedelic rock. Our original music carries the audience back to the hey day of rock n' roll, while adding a new and unique modern twist to the mix.

Some of our notable achivements over the years include:
•1 of 6 artists chosen to be LAUNCHED on CTV's new music television series The Launch, releasing our song Wide Awake everywhere!
•Opening act on 2018 summer tours with Collective Soul, Billy Talent, Theory of a Deadman, and Kansas
•National Semi-finalists in CBC's 2017 Searchlight Competition (Top 25 out of thousands of entries)
•Winners of the 2016 and 2017 YYC (Calgary) Music Awards for Rock Recording of the Year, nominees for Group of the Year at the 2016 YYC Music Awards, and winners of the Zachariah and the Prophets Memorial Award at the 2017 YYC Music Awards
•Three time finalists in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 International Songwriters Competition (out of more than 18,000 entries each year)

We have played venues as far as the Whiskey A Go Go (Los Angeles), The Commodore Ballroom (Vancouver), and The Horseshoe Tavern (Toronto), to as close as The Jubilee and MacEwan Hall at home in Calgary. Sharing the stage with The Sheepdogs, Billy Talent, Trooper, Colin James, Collective Soul, Theory of a Deadman, and Kansas has been an honour!

?We're old souls with young minds, with a goal to share music to people around the world. If you consider yourself to be a live music enthusiast, we'd love to see you at a show.
